The Ascot in Action

December-27

I have a camera again! Hooray! Well, a borrowed camera. And a husband who is home to take photos for me. Photos always turn out better when there is a man I love behind the lens.

This is the outfit I wore last week when I blogged about ascot outfits. I’m quickly running out of layering pieces to vary my wardrobe, so I think I will probably be making a trip to the thrift store this week. Lately I’ve been on the lookout for wooly jumpers, vests, cardigans, and long sleeve patterned shirts to wear under the former.

    Ascots are my ALL TIME FAV way to dress up an outfit if I’m feeling a little ‘blah’. I often use a cute summery scarf over a band tee or non-collared shirt to give it a little more class. [: Such a great idea with the cardi, I’m definitely trying that! You are the best best best! and i love your new year photos and the one of your friend sticking his tongue out all out of focus. rock on 2011!
